    3.25" max width is going to look fairly narrow with your height - but if this is what you usually wear and it looks right to you, then by all means go for it. The other consideration is whether the knot will tie up nicely. You can leave this to David though, if he knows your height and the type of knot you usually tie then he will make sure the tie's width in the knot region will be right.

    I threw up a pic of the four grenadine weaves together a few pages back. A looser weave seems a bit less formal to me, but I think it mainly comes down to what you like the look of.

    Hi Skanstull! What is the custom charge of a tie?

    Are those grenadines lined or unlined?

    I recently ordered four grenadines, bringing my Hober tie total to seven:

    • navy fina
    • forest green fina
    • bitter chocolate piccola
    • dark purple piccola
    • black grossa
    • dark navy grossa
    • burgundy grossa

    My hope is to be able to wear a Hober tie everyday eventually. Next up will be some Macclesfields.

    Unfortunately I stained the navy fina recently. I wanted to send it to Tie Crafters, but that wasn't an option with their four-tie minimum, so it's at Rave Fabricare right now. I'm hoping they can work some magic.

    Thanks, David, for making such great ties.

    I'm at five Hobers. Talking with David about a sixth, something he's described as a bit of an experiment (unlined four fold piccola). Now that somebody has mentioned it, I'll have to get a 7th so as to have one every day of the week.

    I am really, really happy that Panta doesn't offer more colors in their grenadines. Hober and Panta provide two different types of ties...but if they didn't...well...hard choices would have to be made.

    EDIT: seriously...David is amazing to work with.

    If David offered tussah and shantung, I'd be putting his kids through college.

    +1. David, any chance of offering shantungs for this summer? You'd likely have a lot of takers...

    STITCHY (if you say his name in all caps, he appears, right?)

    As the forum's greatest Hober champion (though the entire forum pretty much reps his goods at this point), what say you to Hober shantung?

    (though perhaps Hober already accounts for enough tie awesomeness and does not need to expand...)
